Our luck was cut short last friday as it was winding down to race time and the rain was coming down. As it got closer and closer to beginning suddenly our power to the building was taken away and we closed up for the night.
The weekend is here so that means Friday has come and gone along with our Friday night Womp racing. We had a total of 7 racers here for our TB 32 Womp race when it came time to begin. Once the power came on it was; Scott, Pepper, and Jim who came out the gates flying. After the 1st heat we had Pepper and Jim tied for the lead at 45 laps. Pepper was moving quick and had a 47 lap heat in the 2nd which left him just 1 lap ahead of Jim. The 3rd heat is when Pepper sat out and corner marshalled so Jim took over at the helm but had Scott close behind just 1 lap back in 2nd place. Jim would sit out now in the 4th so Scott took over 1st place but it would be short lived as he would soon sit out during; 5th, 6th and 7th heat. The 7th heat would be all Pepper as he had the best heat of the night. He was really moving as he finished with 49 laps and a fast lap of 3.569. Going into the 8th heat Pepper was ahead of Jim by 2 laps but Jim would soon run into some bad luck as he busted a guide wire during the 8th heat which cost him the race. In the closing heats its was shaping up to be a close one between Pepper and Scott. Scott would have his final heat of the night during the 11th and he finished with a solid 48 laps on yellow. Pepper would need 90 laps to tie Scott at 369 laps. The 13th heat began and Pepper was on black and he did what he needed to do as he didn't fall victim to the black lane as he a solid 46 laps. Coming down to the final heat Pepper would need 45 laps to win and he did just that as he closed the final heat with 47 laps leaving him 3 laps ahead of Scott and with a 1st place finish. So the final for this weeks Friday night Womp racing went like this; Pepper, Scott, Tim, Mel, Tim, Russ, and Jim.
We had a total of 8 racers make it out for our Friday night Womp racing. So it was decided to do just 1 big race, with 4 on and 4 off. The 1st heat was underway and it was Jim who jumped out to an early lead as he opened up with 42 laps on orange giving him a 2 lap lead over Stu and a 3 lap lead over Mel. Mel would advance passed Jim in the 2nd heat as he went ahead by 1 lap. At the end of the 4th it was Mel's turn to sit out and he was sitting comfortable with 166 laps. Tim W would also get off to a good start with his first 4 heats and when it came his time to sit out he was up to 147 laps. It was nice to have Stu back this night as it was his 1st race in roughly a year. He began the race in the 1st heat as he opened up with 40 laps but then he would sit out til the 6th heat and that’s where he would pick up right where he left off. He had 39 laps in the 6th, but he would follow it up with 41 on green and then another 41 on orange finishing with 40 laps on yellow bringing his total to 201 laps. Mel made his return in the 9th and continued doing what he does best. Mel's night would come to an end in the 12th heat as he finished with 39 laps on yellow leaving his grand total at 322 laps. Stu would come back into the race in the 14th heat as he had 40 laps on blue then did really good down on the hardest lanes; purple and black. He had finished with 39 laps on both lanes which is some pretty impressive stuff leaving his total at 319 laps. In the end it was Mel who came away with the win with 322 laps with a fast lap of 4.007 on blue. Since this race consisted of both “A” and “B” racers, the podium for the “B” main went like this; Tim Wood, Glenn Mercer, and Tom De Avila. Then for the “A” racers it went like this; Mel Moon, Stu, and Jim Watterson.
TB 32 Race – Crash & Dash
So it was 2 Fridays ago after our normal Friday night Womp races it was decided to have TB 32 motor Womp race. It was a small field of just 5 racers and it was going to be a crash and dash style of race. When the race got underway it was Jim who pulled away early as he opened up with 33 laps on white. He followed it up with 31 laps on red putting him now ahead of Tim b by 4 laps. Mel got off to a bumpy start but come the end of the 3rd heat he was in a tie for 2nd place with Tim B at 92 laps. During the 4th he would move ahead of Tim B and was now trailing our leader by just 3 laps. Jim would have a solid 40 laps in the 5th heat which moved him back up to a 9 lap lead. Jim made his way down to black during the 6th and had just 30 laps while Mel had a solid 37 on yellow which out him now just 2 laps back of Jim with 2 heats to go. Out of thin air Tim B made a move from 3rd place up to 1st place with just 1 heat to go. He had a 2 lap lead over Jim going into the final heat, that's when Mel finished up with 40 laps on white while Jim had 33 laps on orange moving Jim down to 3rd place. Tim B had a solid 38 laps in the closing heat which was enough to come away with the win beating off Mel by just 2 laps at 272 to 270 laps. So the final for the TB 32 race came out like this; Tim B, Mel, Jim, Tom, and Tim W.
We had a small turnout Friday night for our usual Womp race so it was decided to run a toothbrush 32nd scale race. Thank you to Mel and Jim for supplying the field with cars for the race and hopefully this new format can be something we do on a regular basis. We had a total of 6 racers when it came time to begin racing and within the first heat we had all 4 racers open up with 40+ laps but it was Jim leading the pack with 45 laps but he had Pepper and Mel close behind. Jim would sit out in the 2nd heat which allowed for Pepper and Mel to move up and they moved into a tie for the lead at 89 laps. It was during the 3rd heat that Mel would take control of the lead over Pepper as he went ahead by 1 lap. Mel would sit out in the 4th heat as it was his time to corner marshal so Pepper would take control of the lead. Jim would come back into the race during the 4th heat picking up where he left off restarting with 44 laps on red. Jim would do very well during the 5th as he made his way to green and had 47 laps with a fast lap of 3.780 but that wouldn't be his fastest lap of the night as he had a 3.725 on blue during the 10th heat. At the end of the 8th heat both Mel and Pepper were tied for the lead at 261 laps but Mel would persevere in the 9th and went ahead of Pepper by just 1 lap. Pepper's final heat came in the 10th as he finished with 42 laps on yellow bringing his total to 342 but we still had 2 heats to go so its unsure how Pepper will turnout in the end. Scott was doing very well this evening as his lowest heat came during the 2nd as he had 42 laps on red while the rest of his heats were; 44's, 45's and some 46's. The final heat for Scott came in the 11th and he finished strong with 45 laps leaving his 358 laps. Jim would need 41 laps in the final heat to tie Scott and sure enough Jim would come out on top as he finished with 43 laps on black bringing his total to 360 laps and securing another 1st place finish. Good racing guys and hopefully we can do this format again.
